Teddy Bear

Yvette - William Simpson Teddy Bear Collection

This teddy bear was named ‘Yvette' by Mr William Simpson, who was an avid collector of more than 250 teddy bears. Yvette wears a red and white dress and a wine knitted jacket with tweed knit trim.

Yvette was received by Mr Simpson as a gift from L Denimal of Dunkerque in Christmas 2005. The bear shows no evidence of its country of manufacture but it was probably intended as a Motor Car mascot as it had a loop attached to the head. This loop was removed. Possibly belongs with Mr Simpson's teddy bear 'Emile'.
